(2020) Mâcon-Villages is a white Burgundy appellation from the southerly Mâconnais, a relatively warm region of vineyards close to the border with Beaujolais. Unoaked (or only very lightly oaked?) it's a lovely poised style of Chardonnay, not without ripeness and sweetness of fruit, but fresh, crisp and really quite elegant. There is some weight and richness to the texture, but the dry apple acidity in the finish leaves it food-friendly, mouth-watering, and very good value. Watch the video for more information and food matching ideas.
(2019) A lovely unoaked example of a Chardonnay from Burgundy that nods towards the New World with its delicious ripeness and clarity, but not at the expense of Burgundian restraint. Creamy on the nose, the aromas are of an applie pie taken straight from the oven, buttery pastry notes, ripe apples and pears. In the mouth there is weight here, again a buttery richness from both the ripe fruit and, I suspect lees stirring and malolactic fermentation, to round and soften the edges. Sweet fruit on the mid-palate runs into more of that firm apple and lemon acidity into a juicy, balanced finish. Watch the video for food-matching ideas and more information.
(2016) The Wine Rack chain is owned by Conviviality retail, the UK's biggest off-licence operator (who also took over Bibendum wines last week).  What an excellent Petit Chablis this is, with hints of proper Chablis character so rarely found in these wines which don't usually come from Chablis' famous Kimmeridgean soils, with some flint and gunsmoke, bold and fresh apple and load of juicy personality. Lovely lime and lemon freshness and a touch of mineral saltiness in the finish.
(2016) A very pure and aromatic vintage, very fragrant. Delightful, delicate nose, with the fresh crunch of apple and a hint of oatmeal. Lots of citrus juiciness, quite straightforward, but delicious balance and crispness into the finish.
(2011) Bottled with a high quality 'Nomacorc' closure the oyster-shell typicity of Chablis comes through nicely on this wine, with some apple fruit and a hint of pastry in the background. The palate is gorgeous: brimming with ripe, concentrated fruit like juicy apple and fat, fresh lemon, that salty tang of minerality is very evident in the long finish.
